Spotlight

My words are wounded sounds that tremble and collide on my tongue

Tumble out of my mouth in garbled mess

fall to the floor in thousands of fragments that shatter into millions

fear blazes in my heart, blisters my skin, and suffocates my mind

Bored glances, glazed vision, encouraging smiles all melt into glacial, judging stares

that scorch my soul

my mouth bleeds, my body shudders, tears splinter my eyes

I am trapped in lurid spotlight
